This blogging world is chock full of creative and inspiring people. I am so excited to participate in the collaborative blogging project, Art to Inspiration! Art to Inspiration is a monthly collaborative blogging project in which bloggers around the world post how the same piece of artwork has inspired them on the first Wednesday of every month. So let’s get started!
I was pumped when I saw the artwork inspiration for April, 2 Years, 264 Days and This Morning by Pakayla Biehn, an artist whose work I love and recently featured!
2 Years, 264 Days and This Morning, oil on canvas, 26x18
In my gallery days, one of my absolute favorite tasks was to help curate, design and plan how the work was hung in the gallery. Laying work out, figuring out how pieces relate and the best way for them to work together visually. So for my first Art to Inspiration, it felt natural to curate my own gallery of work inspired by Biehn’s piece.
